As Pope Francis prepares to celebrate his first Christmas Mass at the Vatican, Americans' opinions of the pontiff appear to be as high as the dome on St. Peter's Basilica, according to a new survey.

"The new survey suggests that the Pope is arguably the most well-regarded religious figure among the American public today" (ref. "CNN Poll: Pope's Approval Sky High", Daniel Burke, CNN Belief, Dec.24,2013)

Why is it so?

Is it because he has confessed that Jesus Christ is the Son of the ONE AND ONLY GOD?
Is it because he is confessing that we are to worship the One Lord Our Creator and Him ALONE, His Will Alone, to serve in obedience.....as Our Lord the Christ said to satan?

Or is it because that Jorge Bergoglio has confessed "freedom and equality of self-rights and self-religion"?

Since Americans live by their love for and worship of "freedom", the answer is obvious why Jorge Bergoglio is so popular.

BUT NOTE...it is ONLY Christ that will rule according to and in obedience to the Will of the One and Only Creator God...AND NOT according to man's love for his "freedom".

Yes, it IS obvious since they ALSO live by their love for and worship of 'America's got talent', and 'family guy', and 'access hollywood', and 'the biggest loser', and 'kardashians', and 'dick dynasty', and 'mad men', and 'breaking bad', and 'American idol', and 'glee', and... if you haven't gotten my point by now then you deserve to be a very useful tool in that organization.
